The Road Not Taken By Robert Frost

I’m a reader. You might know that. Today I’m sharing my favorite poem ever. That’s all I’ll say, and I won’t translate today to sapnish, this can be fully appreciated just as Robert Frost wrote it. Last week I shared some ideas about changes, today the topic is CHOICES.

The Road Not Taken

By Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference

Cheers,

The Fault in our Stars by John Green | Book Review

9780525478812_custom-7eb6cc16a8a3f2266865895e1718ac9e9d6232e0-s6-c30-321x470


“You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world…but you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices.”

John Green


What’s up with bringing people to their outrages despairs and sharing their stories? Ok, I love it already. From Breaking Bad to argentine film Relatos Salvajes (watch it, seriously, watch it!), I’ve been thinking a lot about the moment in which a  person is brought up to the saddest or most fearless moments of their lives and they wildly act upon emotions.

Today I wanted to make my own book review for “The Fault in our Stars” by John Green.

I know, I know, I’m super late for the review, but wanted to come up with my own comments on it. For some reason I rejected reading it because of all the fuss about it, and when the movie kicked in I was definite I wouldn’t watch it until I read the book. Now I’m not sure if I’ll watch the movie at all, not sure.

I love reading, but I don’t love reading it just because everyone else is reading it and loves it. I feel that sometimes there are stories that touch as in the moment we need them to, and that is the magic of a writer. John Green totally did this to many teenagers! :)

This is the story of two teenage kids who struggled in a way or another through cancer. I won’t be giving any details not to spoil it, but this is a book that brings the characters to show they have their “deadline” super close and this made them angry, thoughtful, but above all very, very, real and PRESENT. I love this last part, living the most out of each day and being present where we are, right now, at this precise moment.

Probably because there is a story of child cancer in my family that this story touches me profoundly, but I feel that there is a lot of different things we take for granted every single day and we just shouldn’t. The gift of a new day, yes kind of cliché, but so true! Friends, family, husbands/special ones, we all have something to be SO thankful for.

I want to live the most out of my days and this book is just a reminder of that. I know this has a lot to do with my beliefs (click on I believe to know more about that!), but I guess this book reminds me just this. And that is all I’ll say about it.

¿Qué es lo que pasa con eso de traer a la gente a un punto extremo y compartir sus historias? Ok, me encanta! De Breaking Bad a Relatos Salvajes, he estado pensando mucho en el momento en que se lleva a una persona al momento más crítico y desafiante de sus vidas, y cómo actúan bajo sus emociones de manera salvaje.

Hoy quería compartir mis sentimientos sobre “The Fault in Our Stars” de John Green.

Lo sé, lo sé, estoy muy tarde para hacer una revisión seguro todos ya lo leyeron, pero igual quería compartir mis propias observaciones al respecto. Por alguna razón, rechazo rotundamente la lectura “bestseller” por todo lo que se habla sobre ello, y luego sale la película sobre este libro y decidí leer el libro antes de ver la película. Ahora no se si veré siquiera la película :P

Me encanta leer. Siento que hay veces que ciertas historias nos tocan en un momento específico de la vida por algo y nos dejan una marca, y eso es la magia del escritor. John Green hizo esto con mucho adolescentes :D

Sobre el libro: dos adolescentes que han luchado de una manera u otra con cancer. No voy a dar más detalles para no arruinarle la experiencia a nadie, pero este es un libro donde los personajes están muy atentos  a que tienen una “fecha de vencimiento” y esto los hace pensar, actuar y hablar de cierta manera. Los hace enojarse fácil, pero por sobre todo a estar muy PRESENTES. Me encanta esta ultima parte, que viven cada día al máximo y siempre MUY presentes.

Probablemente por que hay una historia de cancer infantil en mi familia es que esta historia me toca muy profundo, pero si creo que damos por hecho muchas cosas y no deberíamos. El regalo de un nuevo día, si super cliche, pero tan cierto! Amigos, familia, esposos/novios/blah, todos tenemos algo para lo cual ser agradecidos.

Yo quiero vivir al máximo mis días y este libro me recuerda esto. Tiene también mucho que ver con mis creencias (para más info en esto hacer click en “I Believe”!), pero creo que este libro me recuerda eso. Y esto es lo único que diré al respecto.

 

Cheers,

Changes

changesChanges, we all need them. I think women are driven to changes naturally. We seek for them once in a while. Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t have to be a huge change. Sometimes it’s only a change in a room’s furniture, or a different pillow in a bed, but we always look up to these changes that make a little beauty in life. Mr. Shaw was totally right. Changes make us grow.

I’ve been thinking about this through the whole day, and I wanted to share this. Be ready to change your minds and adapt. Even though sometimes this may hurt.

Cambios, todos los necesitamos. Creo que las mujeres somos cambiantes por naturaleza. Buscamos esto todo el tiempo. No me mal interpreten, no tienen que ser cambios grandes. A veces el cambio viene por mover un mueble, o una almohada distinta en la cama, pero siempre buscamos estos cambios que hacen un poquito más linda la vida. Mr. Shaw tiene toda la razón. Los cambios nos hacen crecer.

He estado pensando sobre esto todo el día, y quería compartir con ustedes esto. Estén dispuestas a cambiar sus mentes y adaptarse. Aun cuando esto implique un poco de dolor.

 

Cheers,

Camila

Hey everyone!

I belong to a church where we all serve ALWAYS, and when we do so we should put all of our  heart, might, mind and strength to it. I made this printables for everybody to use! Free printables to remember to serve this way!

During 2015 the youth in the LDS Church will focus their attention in serving just as the Lord commanded we should do. Let us all look up to opportunities to serve!

Hola a todos!

Yo pertenezco a una iglesia donde todos servimos SIEMPRE, y cuando lo hacemos nos debemos de asegurar que lo hacemos con todo nuestro corazón, alma, mente y fuerza. Hice estos pósters para que todos los podamos usar! Imprimibles que nos recuerdan a servir de esta manera!

Durante 2015 la juventud en la Iglesia de Jesucristo de los Santos de los Ultimos Días se enfocará en servir de la manera que el Señor nos manda que lo hagamos. Ojalá podamos buscar oportunidades para servir!
